Jacques LeBlanc
MLA, Shediac-Beaubassin-Cap-Pelé

Jacques LeBlanc is a devoted citizen who is involved in his community. He was elected as Municipal Councillor to the Shediac Town Council for the first time in May 2008. After serving his four-year term, he decided to run for Mayor in the May 2012 elections.

His innovative ideas and dynamic leadership quickly convinced the citizens of Shediac that he was the right man for the job; and on May 14, 2012, he was given the mandate to lead the municipality. He was re-elected as Mayor by acclamation at the 2016 elections.

Among his achievements as Mayor, he has been a promoter of municipal smart growth and helped maintain fiscal responsibility. If there is something Mr. LeBlanc repeats often, it is transparency and accountability.

As Member of the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly, Mr. Leblanc wants to bring the same energy to the job as he did during all the years he spent at the municipal level.

He will continue to work with the people across the Shediac-Beaubassin-Cap-Pelé riding, while using his unifying leadership for the benefit of the greater region. As he often says: “If you want to go fast, go alone; but if you want to go far, go together.”

Mr. LeBlanc graduated from the Université de Moncton in 1986 with a Bachelor of Business Administration (Accounting and Finance); and after more than 26 years of service in accounting at the Villa Providence, he recently retired. Jacques and his wife Denise, who is a business woman, have two children together, Annie and Stéphane.

Among his hobbies, he was a volunteer firefighter for over 15 years and coached hockey for 10 years. He enjoys sports, reading and of course… politics, his latest passion.

Mr. LeBlanc also invests a lot of time and energy into keeping fit, and this is why he can be everywhere he needs to be!
